Are you in uk? Most of us will be pricking out in March or April, much too cold for seedling yet.

I wont even be putting any in until end of March.

I would tip it right out of the pot and check  for vine weevil, repot in new soil, its a very small pot for those plants, I prefer them in the open ground. Being a clay pot it could have dried right out last year.

Mine have leaves on all the year, not so many in winter, but plenty just the same.

Perhaps Pam has upturned an old apple tree.

If that's the case you wouldn't need to remove the grass as anything covering grass will cause it to die.

GM, bit muddled here, the Echium are the giant tall spiky plants pinky/bluey/lilac.

The Eryngium are the Electric blue sea holly.

You are welcome to both if you would so like.

I do still have your address. I have you down for a Buddleia as well.

So sorry Verdun.I think that is very creepy too. Not something we would consider at all. 

The memories will always be with you, you will never forget.

Welcome Nigel its lovely to have a garden you can start from scratch.

Lots of good advise above, I would just add that if it was mine I would put all those stones and statues in one place, like a little rockery, probably in that far corner.

You could sow some sweet peas for this year to brighten the trellis
